Have you ever had to pay 8 euros for a pint in Paris? If that’s the case then you probably think it’s a complete scandal, considering beer is supposed to be a common-folk drink accessible to everyone.
Did you know that for 8 euros you can actually buy 3 pints in some places in Paris? Which means you could buy a small round for your friends for the exact same price!
